Ah yet another Rogue to try and love. I will not I got this beer after they sampled it at the shop my wife works at and it was still good by the time it made it home to me, open for at least an hour. It was also a little warm, but I chilled it and it improved.

Poured a slightly hazey yellowish-orange with a decent white bubbly head. Fair lacing around the glass.

Aromas are very much wheat and dough with a twist. I imagine this is due to the Soba and my limited exposure to Soba. Not much malt aroma present if any at all.

The taste begins with sweet almost oat like wheat flavor. Very familiar, yet strangely unique. The "soba" flavor was followed by a slight caramel tinge with the usual Rogue hops. Medium to medium-light body that finishes very crisp and clean. A very nice lighter beer that would pair very well with food IMHO.

I poured this beer from a 12oz bottle, it has a light orange color body with a small head. The smell has has a light wheat aroma. The taste has a little spice upfront then the wheat to play on the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is smooth and is a easy drinking beer.
